The Fine Art Of Spoofery is the theme for this summer batch of DFS Member's screenings, taking a hard look at the soft, chewy center of the cinematic comedy: the spoof movie! It's one thing to write a comedy but it takes a great hand to cross the line and take a satirical look at genres and serious subjects in pop culture and create an everlasting time capsule that will stay funny for decades. We think this selection is one of those greats!

This spoof comedy takes shots at the slew of disaster movies that were released in the 70s. When the passengers and crew of a jet are incapacitated due to food poisoning, a rogue pilot with a drinking problem must cooperate with his ex-girlfriend turned stewardess to bring the plane to a safe landing.
